We called this place 2 days before arrival and reserved a room for 3500. When arriving at the place we found out that we had a reservation for the small room on the street and not the nice bungalows described. The room was small, directly on the street and right behind the coffe( loud) and not very clean. In the... More

We stayed for 3 nights at one of the log cabin, very spacious and comfortable bedroom. The guesthouse stands in a very quiet place and can be a very good starting point for various walks around the beautiful village of Ella. Nice breakfast, very helpful advices from the owner, Mr Gunasiri, and tasty cakes to have with traditional tea.

We stayed 2 nights in one of the two cabins and it was one of the best accommodations we had. The cabin was clean and comfortable. We heart nothing from our neighbours. The owner was very friendly and helpful. He told us that he will build a thicker wall between the cabins after the peak season in order to improve... More

The bungalows are very nicely settled in a garden, surrounded with flowers and trees. The fruits juices are to die for, especially Passion Fruit and Sour Sop. Great Sri Lankan breakfast, nice pancakes. Although we didn't feel very confortable with the tenant at the beginning, this is one of our favorite place in Sri Lanka.

A good budget option, clean and has hot water . The room can be a little musty due to the humidity but this is remedied by opening the windows even at night. The owner is very pleasant and helpful and has a huge knowledge of walks in this area. He has a small restaurant at the side of the road.... More

Mr Gunasiri picked us up himself from the station and made us feel immediately at home. We stayed in one of the lovely log cabins in the forest, which are very spacious and have their own sitting area outside. The cabins are set back from the road and charming. Mr Gunasiri is a mine of information about local walks and... More

After taking a bus from Kataragama through the most amazing scenery to Ella we arrived at Little folly where we had planned on staying 2 nights, one night in the log cabin and one in the green house. The two log cabins, which were joined together, were beautiful and quirky with slices of tree set into the floors and set... More

Little Folly was a delight to stay in. Located up the road from the main town on the way to Little Adam's Peak, we stayed in one of the log cabins in the woods. The cabin itself was stunning, very well made, clean and spacious (it's huge!). The bathroom was very clean and had a good hot shower (no drizzling... More
